Welcome to the Department of Biological Sciences! Here are a few helpful links to get you started.


New Student Programs offers information about First Year Orientation, Transfer Orientation, and information for parents and families of incoming students. Through this site, you will find links to sign up for Orientation, a schedule overview of the event, and a checklist of items to complete post-Orientation.

During Orientation, you will have an opportunity to meet with us and plan your schedule for the upcoming semester. We use the most up-to-date academic records available to create a “base” schedule for each student before they arrive on campus. During the session, we will work together to make adjustments as necessary.


Computer Requirements offers insight on the features you will want to look for when choosing a personal computer.


The Curie and DaVinci Living Learning Community is much more than a housing option! Learn more about this living/learning community designed for First Year students.
